Making sure your child is immunized helps to keep him healthy, as well as other children attending his school. A list of state-required immunizations from the Ohio Department of Health is available here.
Additional Immunization Requirements for Incoming Seventh and Twelfth Graders:
Seventh Graders: The State of Ohio requires a booster dose of the Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis) and the MCV4 (Meningococcal) vaccine. The Meningococcal vaccine is a new requirement for entry into the seventh-grade.
Twelfth Graders: The State of Ohio requires a second dose of the MCV4 (Meningococcal) vaccine for entry into the twelfth grade.
Once your child has received the required vaccinations, please provide a copy of the shot record to your school’s nurse. Feel free to contact the school nurse with any questions or concerns.
